Time flies - just returned from an intellectually challenging stay at the Max Weber Kolleg, Erfurt, Germany, where for the past 3 months I was able to engage with colleagues of various backgrounds to work on the BARDA project on Early Christian Iconography and Epigraphy which interlinked more and more with further research on Marcion's impact on early Christianity. On this topic I shared draft ideas with colleagues in open lectures at Erfurt and two weeks ago at Tuebingen University. Here at the picture you see the 'new faces', from left to right:
Prof. Dr. Harry Maier, Prof. Dr. Günter Sternberger, DDr Jutta Vinzent, Prof. Dr. Joseph Bergin, myself, Prof. Dr. Valerian Rodrigues.
I have to thank the people in charge at the Max Weber Kolleg to enable such an inspiring stay - and we hope that it will not have been the last of them.
